Small Businesses in the Northern Inland region will have the opportunity to attend workshops with business speaker, Sue Currie from May 28 to June 1.
“Brand visibility is vital to growing a small business”, says Sue, who returns to the region after presenting a keynote address in Inverell on personal branding on International Women’s Day in March.
“In my workshops I’ll be covering the elements of brand, public relations and digital communication to promote your small business in the local community.
“I will be guiding the workshop participants to create a nine-point communication plan that will help them develop their skills in communicating their businesses to the public”, Sue added.
The Boost Your Brand workshops will include examples, stories and interactive exercises to create awareness of what brands both personal and professional mean to you and teach what public relations is and why you need it for your business. You will learn the effective use of digital marketing tactics and technology tools to assist with brand communication and will clarify your communication goals and objectives.
